Roma midfielder Nainggolan: Differences between Di Francesco and Spalletti

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan admits he's enjoying playing for coach Eusebio di Francesco.

Di Francesco replaced Luciano Spalletti, who is now in charge of Inter Milan.

Nainggolan said, “In terms of character, I think Di Francesco is rather calmer compared to Spalletti. Oftentimes Spalletti would get really worked up because he just read something that was wrong or would hear something and make it a bigger deal than it really was.

“On the other hand, Di Francesco is someone who focuses only on the work. He really believes in what he does and knows what he wants."
